      Imagine the audacity of building a city of marble palaces on a lagoon – and that was only the start. Never was a thoroughfare so aptly named as the Grand Canal, reflecting the glories of centuries of Venetian architecture in the 50 palazzi and six churches lining its banks. At the end of Venice’s signature S-shaped waterway, the Palazzo. More than miles of navigable inland waterways wind through palatial estates, citrus groves, and the unique and exotic Everglades—beckoning boats of all sizes and shapes. It is the Intracoastal Waterway—stretching south to Miami—and the waterfront homes which dot it, that have earned Greater Fort Lauderdale its reputation as the "Venice of America."Author: Dawn Henthorn.
